Nurzhan Nursultanov

In 2009, Nurzhan received BEng in Chemical Technology of Organic Compounds from Kazakh-British Technical University, Almaty, Kazakhstan. From 2008 to 2009, he worked as an engineer/lab assistant in PolyAB Ltd., Almaty, Kazakhstan, where his main duty was to control polymerisation processes. In 2011, he received a Master of Engineering in Chemical and Materials Engineering from Auckland University, New Zealand. From 2011 to 2013, he worked in Petrofac Int. Ltd., Sharjah, UAE, as a Graduate Process Engineer. In 2013, he received an EPECentre scholarship to pursue a PhD degree in Chemical and Process Engineering at Canterbury University. He studied Joule heating of green Pinus radiata logs for phytosanitary purposes using experimentation and computational modelling. Currently, his thesis is under examination and he is awaiting the oral defence. He is currently working for the EPECentre as a Research Engineer specialising in computational modelling of low frequency electric field distribution and heat transfer in heterogeneous/anisotropic materials such as green wood.
